Elementary School

The Trinity Christian School Elementary program is the gateway to the outstanding classical Christian education that we provide. Students are immersed in subject material emphasizing truth, beauty, and goodness. At this stage of learning, Trinity exposes the students to a wide variety of subject material, helping each child to “go wide,” as first grade teacher Mrs. Fiscus explains:

Going wide now is a starting point for digging deeper when presented with new material, and the fear of the unknown is gone which allows them to join the conversation.

Beginning in Kindergarten, students participate in comprehensive phonics and English programs. Many of the subjects taught incorporate songs and jingles to assist in memorization. Our elementary history program begins with Old Testament history in First Grade and concludes with the Reformation in Sixth Grade. All elementary students participate in our "specials" program, participating in music and physical education twice a week, and library and art once a week. Teachers provide an environment where children feel secure, loved, and respected. We value play among our students, scheduling recess for students in Kindergarten through Sixth grade. Our goal is to develop a love of learning that will serve as a catalyst for a lifetime of education and service in God’s Kingdom.
